Reliable Freestanding Position-based Routing in Highway Scenarios

ABSTRACT

Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANETs) are considered by car manufacturers and the research community as the enabling technology to radically improve the safety, efficiency and comfort of everyday driving. However, before VANET technology can fulfill Continue reading

Compact Planar Ultrawideband Antennas with 3.5/5.2/5.8 GHz Triple Band-Notched Characteristics for Internet of Things Applications

ABSTRACT

Ultrawideband (UWB) antennas, as core devices in high-speed wireless communication, are widely applied to mobile handsets, wireless sensor networks, and Internet of Things (IoT). A compact printed monopole antenna for UWB applications with triple Continue reading

Electromagnetic Simulation and Alignment of Dual-Polarized Array Antennas in Multi-Mission Phased Array Radars

ABSTRACT

Electromagnetic (EM) simulation of dual-polarized antennas is necessary for precise initial alignments, calibration and performance predictions of multi-function phased array radar systems. To achieve the required flexibility and scalability, a novel Finite-Difference Continue reading

Modeling and Control of the Redundant Parallel Adjustment Mechanism on a Deployable Antenna Panel

ABSTRACT

With the aim of developing multiple input and multiple output (MIMO) coupling systems with a redundant parallel adjustment mechanism on the deployable antenna panel, a structural control integrated design methodology is proposed in this paper. Firstly, the modal Continue reading

Dual-Antenna Terrestrial Laser Scanner Georeferencing Using Auxiliary Photogrammetric Observations

ABSTRACT

Terrestrial laser scanning typically requires the use of artificial targets for registration and georeferencing the data. This equipment can be burdensome to transport and setup, representing expense in both time and labor. Environmental factors such as terrain Continue reading

Development of UAS Design based on Wideband Antenna Architecture

ABSTRACT

An Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) has been developed which is based on an aerodynamically functionalized planar wideband antenna. The antenna utilizes a planar circular dipole metallization scheme. The aerodynamic structure implements a Continue reading

An Investigation into Dual-Axis Solar Tracking

ABSTRACT

This senior project aims to determine a) if using a controlled photon-tracking system does produce greater voltage output than a fixed panel and b) by how much, if so. To do this, I built a dual-axis solar tracker using a small solar panel, some stepper motors, Continue reading

Microcontroller Design of a Bidirectional Three-Level Pulse Width Modulation AC/DC Converter for Vehicle-to-Grid Application

ABSTRACT

Bidirectional chargers provide plug-in electric vehicles (EV) the ability to not only transfer energy from the grid to the vehicle, but also transfer energy from the vehicle to the grid (V2G). The V2G mode allows power utility companies to offset peak power Continue reading

An Ionic-Polymer-Metallic Composite Actuator for Reconfigurable Antennas in Mobile Devices

ABSTRACT

In this paper, a new application of an electro-active-polymer for a radio frequency (RF) switch is presented. We used an ionic polymer metallic composite (IPMC) switch to change the operating frequency of an inverted-F antenna. This switch is light in Continue reading

Quality Factor Effect on the Wireless Range of Microstrip Patch Antenna Strain Sensors

ABSTRACT

Recently introduced passive wireless strain sensors based on microstrip patch antennas have shown great potential for reliable health and usage monitoring in aerospace and civil industries. However, the wireless interrogation range of these sensors is limited to Continue reading
